  • Single pie crust
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Prepare the Pie Crust: Fit the pie crust into the bottom of a deep 9-inch pie plate. Shape the edges as desired.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar and flour.
  3. Add Eggs: Crack the eggs into the bowl and whisk them into the sugar-flour mixture until fully integrated.
  4. Combine Wet Ingredients: Pour in the melted butter, buttermilk, and vanilla extract. Add a pinch of salt. Whisk all the ingredients together until the mixture is smooth.
  5. Fill the Pie Crust: Pour this buttermilk mixture into your unbaked pie crust.
  6. Bake: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake the pie for 45 to 50 minutes until the centre sets and the top turns a light golden brown.
  7. Cool and Serve: Allow the pie to cool for at least 2 hours at room temperature. For a refreshing twist, refrigerate the pie after it cools and serve it chilled.

Additional Tips:

  • Lemon Flavor: For a citrusy twist, add 1 tablespoon of lemon zest and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to the filling before baking.
  • Serving Suggestion: This pie is delightful when served cold. After cooling, cover it with plastic wrap and keep it refrigerated until ready to serve.
  • Make Ahead: You can easily prepare this pie 1 to 2 days in advance, making it perfect for stress-free hosting.
